About
We are so much more than a maze! Offering 6 acres of award winning gardens (showcased nationally on ''Better Homes and Gardens'', ''Gardening Australia'', and ''Secrets of Beautiful Gardens''), we are one of the must-see attractions in the Mansfield area. Come watch internationally acclaimed bird artist Tony Pridham working in his studio/art gallery. Or enjoy Nicky’s home-made buttermilk scones and excellent coffee in the garden café. And of course, the famous gnome hunt in our Maze keeps both young and old entertained…can you find all the gnomes and get your reward at the end? Then move on to the outdoor games room with giant chess, checkers and more. The complex of stunning gardens, giant topiaries, and sculptures are a visual feast – so whether you are a gardener or not, there is a lot to enjoy here. Our gardens are available for special events such as weddings, photo-shoots, or group tours by appointment. Bring a picnic, meet friends for coffee or just chill in our gorgeous garden

Gorgeous gardens and fun for the kids
Jan. 2021 • Family
We had a beautiful day at the maze. My four year old had a ball finding the gnomes. It was so tranquil sitting in the shade of the gorgeous trees with a yummy iced coffee to finish up

A lovely place for an hour with kids!
Jan. 2021
We visited for around an hour with a 4 year old!

The gardens are LOVELY!

The little adventure activity set up for the kids was a nice little time killer!

Well priced, and a quick trip after the zoo!

Will be better when the cafe is back to 100% operational and can add lunch to the visit.

Thanks for your lovely review Ebony. We now have lunch available...everything from grazing platters to soup, quiche or toasties. We are loving our nice warm cafe on these cooler days!

Great fun and a visual treat
Jan. 2021
I'm a terrible navigator, but the maze was fun, especially finding the gnomes. The gardens were an incredible testament to a great design and lots of hard work – really beautiful with lots of attention to detail. For art-lovers or anyone who appreciates nature, the gallery had delightful paintings and prints that were so realistic the birds nearly jumped off the page.

Thank you for your lovely review. We are really happy with the way the gardens have developed plus of course our new cafe and gallery. It's great that you enjoyed your visit and we look forward to seeing you back again when you are back in the High Country.

Truly a hidden gem and great experience for all ages
Dec. 2020 • Family
We absolutely love it! This was our second visit with our family of five to this hidden gem! Just beautiful and lots of fun. In the main maze we needed to find not only the middle of the maze, but 16 gnomes. You may think this would be easy (as we have done it before) but you would be mistaken....an hour and a half went by before we found them all!! We then moved on to walk silently through the labyrinth (another challenge) and one not easy for our 9 and 12 year old, followed by a giant game of chess, a heart garden, and finding all the topiary and pixie faces!! A true delight and great day. Highly recommended!!

Well worth the trip!
Nov. 2020 • Friends
We drove up from Mansfield and were really impressed. The maze is good fun but the highlights for us (mid 20s) were the gorgeous gardens and new gallery with incredible art. The owners were great, so helpful and friendly. Would really recommend as an excursion from Mansfield to relax and enjoy the scenery!
